there. the last time around, we studied emotion. ronald reagan said of the bill to -- set up the bill to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appreciation f

, almost to the day, when ronald reagan made a statement in his inaugural address that the solution to the government -- the government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem. if you believe that, do not the president, for heaven's sake. you had a president who was inveighing against government. presidents of both parties have basically continued this policy. we have no active programs to solve any of these problems. we know what the solutions are -- we're not going to pay for any of them. i'm telling you, sadly, it is getting worse. no matter what the agreement is in two months. we are squeezing -- the rich have gotten their way. the corporate sector has gotten their way. they do not pay. there is no money for this preschool. all the sectors alone and -- own and operate the congress, so we have overpriced systems, exactly what you say, schools that do not work. we have the least social mobility of any high-income country in the world now. we havewe have kids locked into poverty like no other high- income countries in the whole world. because you cannot get o

under the most conservative president and our lifetime, which was ronald reagan. it was reagan who approved the or signed into law the simpson readying a bill that provided the opportunity for about 3 million people who were then in the country, undocumented, to legalize their status. we are talking about 11 the following people that are undocumented in the united states. and i think that the extreme -- the most extreme right of the republican party understands that if 11 million to 12 laypeople are able to legalize their status and become voters, it will change the political landscape of america for decades to come. they understand it could spell doom of the republican party for a generation to come. and that's why i think there are struggling so much against it, just as they did back in 1986 with the first comprehensive immigration reform. so i think there is a political reason for this the vehement opposition to basically adjusting the status for folks that really, for the most part, are not criminals. they're hard-working people. there were forced to, by a variety of reasons, l

that teflon president ronald reagan. i have the words that come after them, hoover bill and have her eyes. president herbert hoover was in charge of the feeding of europe and the foodstuffs for the world. the hoover eyes need to be careful, not wasted, not throw food away. that's a positive turn back. , but yeah i do that because that's part of their legacy. >> are the reasons it nicely harder for president obama to notably nila chase analyst for the founding father? can he talk about how you research the book? >> it's probably a little bit harder, but if you just look at the language created by the internet and in the last 20 years, it probably isn't. it may happen by chance. when lincoln creates a really interesting words, one of the words he first uses he's talking about secession. he said the secessionist sugarcoating the impact on this country. the printer of the united states comes to lincoln and says we cannot put this in the official record. lincoln said i can't imagine any american not knowing. again, going back to william safire's influence on his, one of the first uses of cool,

powell in their administrations and they have never shown him anything but opportunity. ronald reagan made him national security advisor president bush 41 made him chairman of joints chief of staff and president bush 43 made him secretary of state. i don't think you can prove deep vein of intolerance by his personal experience. the comments he took frwere a couple of stray comments from this past presidential season one of them by sarah palin is not a central figure in republican party politics at the moment and wasn't then. she is out of lek tive office. she is more or less on the hisi lines she has a following to be sure then he spoke of the comment president obama was lazy. that need not be considered a racial comment. the president was known not to enjoy preparing for the debate. his aids were fearful he didn't do so intentionally enough for that first debate. i think the case that he makes is weak and it is an odd thing for a man who declares himself to be a republican and has done so well for republicans to say. >> how the media covered al gore al-jazeera. it is a scandal. the f

. then, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says something about all of us as well -- something about the nation, its feelings, what it was looking for because they are certainly trying to play off of that as well. part of the material that we collect is just about the enthusiasm. now, inaugurations are meant to be days of national celebration and national unity. they are not, obviously, always that way, so these kind of souvenirs that people might create, just as in the days of george washington -- you know, here are these brass buttons, these little penance that people could buy from the vendors on the street and take home. i particularly like this. this is a li
